Michael Blake
Saxophonist Composer Arranger


The Canada Council of the Arts has awarded Michael a grant from its Concept to Realization program to compose, record and release new works for Michael Blake with Strings! Michael is honored by the acknowledgment and is using this time off to write the pieces.

Slow Poke at Home was remastered by the legendary Gene Paul. Listen to this classic and more of Michael's albums on bandcamp.

Last year Michael and drum master Jerry Granelli launched the New Canadian Art Quartet. This exciting collective ensemble includes cellist Peggy Lee and keyboardist Chris Gestrin. The group has recorded a new album of original material and will be performing this November.
